The Olympic Club to Host 100th California State Amateur June 20-25, 2011


A total of 156 players coming from 15 qualifying sites across the state will converge on The Olympic Club’s Lake and Ocean courses for 36 holes of stroke-play qualifying. The top 32 players will advance from stroke play to single-elimination match play on the Lake layout, with the scheduled 36-hole fi nal set for Saturday, June 25.


• Participants will get a fi rst-hand look at The Olympic Club’s extensive renovation in ad- vance of the ‘12 U.S. Open. Several holes have new tees, most notably the par-4 seventh and the formerly short par-3 eighth holes and the entire course now boasts bentgrass greens.


• Handicap Requirement – 4.4 or lower


• Players to watch – Besides past champions Casey Boyns (‘89, ‘93), Nick Delio (‘08), Dar- ryl Donovan (‘01), Don DuBois (‘05), Geoff Gonzalez (‘09), Jordan Nasser (‘06), Steve Woods (‘94) and defending champion Scott Travers, NCGA stalwarts Jeff Wilson and


Olympic Club member Randy Haag will be looking to add a State Amateur cham- pionship to their celebrated resumes.


• The 100 years of the State Amateur has pro- duced great champions, but the diffi culty in winning the event might best be illustrated by the two native Californians who never won – Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.


• The Olympic Club has hosted four U.S. Opens (‘55,’66,’87 and ‘98) and will host its fi fth in 2012. After that championship, the club will have staged 10 total USGA na- tional championships.
